Product Description

Why does a good and all powerful God allow us to experience pain and suffering? Drawing on stories of ill and dying children to clarify his discussion of theological issues, Hauerwas explores why we so desperately seek explanations for suffering and evil in today's world and demonstrates why the solutions that have been suggested are doomed to failure. Alternatively, he shows us a God who, through his believing community, "can give a voice to that pain in a manner that at least gives us a way to go on."

Publisher's Description

Why does a good and all-powerful God allow us to experience pain and suffering? According to Stanley Hauerwas, asking this question is a theological mistake. Drawing heavily on stories of ill and dying children to illustrate and clarify his discussion of theological-philosophical issues, Hauerwas explores why we so fervently seek explanations for suffering and evil, and he shows how modern medicine has become a god to which we look (in vain) for deliverance from the evils of disease and mortality.
